Ulnaby Farm Cafe

Opening HoursFarm Shop


Visit our cafe situated on our working farm and relax.  Enjoy delicious, freshly cooked food which is produced using home reared and home baked ingredients.

On our farm we are proud to use traditional farming methods.

We use our own produce as much as possible and and food  that we don’t rear or grow is ethically sourced, from local suppliers wherever possible.


Sample Menu

Our menu changes daily as we use food that is currently in season and grown either on our farm or locally in our farmhouse kitchen.

Room for Pudding?

If you like your puddings as much as we do...make sure and leave some room as we are specialists in cakes, cookies, desserts and all things deliciously sweet and decadent.

Pudding heaven...

Meet the Residents!

Visitors are welcome to get close to some of our much loved residents. We have a Pony, a Donkey, Llama, Goats and at Easter we have Lambs, all of which can be observed at close quarters on our farm.  We ask that visitors observe sensible precautions and supervise children whilst they are enjoying their encounter with our animals.  Please do wash your hands after stroking them!


Dogs are welcome in the outside seating area but we do ask that they are not taken into the children's play area nor into the cafe or inside shop.  Please keep dogs on a lead at all times, this is a working farm.

We thank our customers for respecting these rules.

Some of our Trip Advisor Reviews

"Well worth a visit. Lovely farm shop with excellent meats etc and not badly priced, small gift shop upstairs with good selection of cards mugs and things. Cafe gets very busy but a lovely place for lunch or a cuppa. Everything is homemade and the scones are delicious. Play area outside for the children and some animals goats, pony and llama to pet."

"Called on 11/4/19 for coffee and scone. Beautiful cranberry and almond scone crispy on outside and lovely and soft inside. Pleasant staff and nice surroundings.."

"Called in for a coffee after being recommended by a friend. Whilst I was there picked up some of the frozen meat (lamb, steaks and mince) and will definitely be going back again. Nicest meat around."
